The Giants have been known to find gems in the middle and late rounds. This year, they may have hit the jackpot. Yesterday morning, I wrote the following and was mocked by many a reader:
S Tyler Sash is in, as are LB Jacquian Williams and RB Da’Rel Scott. The Giants would be ill advised to cut any of them. They could – COULD - just be looking at their new Jason Sehorn, Jesse Armstead and David Meggett in those three.A little overzealous on my part. I'll admit. But if you watched last night's game, who were the Giants' stars....?
- Scott, seventh-round pick, had 104 yards on nine carries, which included a 65-yard TD scamper on a fake punt.
- Sash, one of the Giants' three sixth-round selections, led the team in tackles for the second week in a row with seven. He also had two sacks and forced a fumble.
- Williams - another sixth rounder, was all over the field. He finished with six tackles and three sacks.
Yesterday, I was on the fence about Jernigan. Today, I say, keep him. He will only get better.
